We walked over to Burghley House, which they are very fortunate to have on their doorstep. Its a great place for kids to run around, acres of grass, sheep and deer. Also there are the Garden of Surprises and the Sculpture Garden - you need to pay to go into these but Beck has a season ticket enabling them to go when they like. Peter & I have been many times to the Park but never to the gardens so it was a treat for us too. Rufus was our willing guide. He spent a good part of the walk to the gardens collecting sticks - its amazing how many things a stick can be, chasing squirrels, playing soldiers, by the time we got there it was time for lunch. Luckily they have a cafe onsite and we managed to have lunch outside, even if it was a bit chilly!
Suitable clothed/shod (read Rufus not us) we headed to the Gardens, what fun, I'll let the pictures tell the story

The four elements sculptures - press a button and they all do something - amazing
